The Halle Institute for Economic Research, the Centre interuniversitaire de recherche en économie quantitative (CIREQ) and the George Washington University – The Center for Economic Research (GW) are organizing the 18th Macroeconometric Workshop to be held in Halle (Saale) on December 12-13, 2017.
The workshop provides a platform to discuss new developments in the field of empirical and applied macroeconomic modelling and aims at bringing together academic researchers and practitioners. We invite applied and theoretical papers dealing with time series, business cycles, mixed frequency modelling and forecasting. Papers that explicitly cover the linkage between macroeconomics and financial markets based on frequency modelling are particularly welcome.
Each conference day is opened by an invited speaker followed by contributed papers and posters.
